Blog Reflection: Administrators using the action research process

As I learn more about the process of action research, it is very interesting to see how various administrators use this technique to improve their decisions. It appears most of them use the action reach to make decisions on a daily basis. The process of having a question posed by a staff member and then reviewing and discussing pertain data to actually identify the specific issue is very smart. This prevents individual from jumping to conclusions which may not be supported by the data results. After this issue has been identified the administrator looks at other factors which may influence the decisions, such as discipline, absences or personal issues.  It appears the action research plan can give an administration a structure to solve issues and provides personnel the comfort their issue will be resolved thoroughly and timely.
